Living with Water in Boston

Track: Water, Health + Vitality

The Living with Water competition, set forth by the City of Boston, acknowledged that for the first time in human history, external environmental conditions will change significantly over the course of a building’s lifespan. The goal in designing for these conditions was to encompass five broad design principles: design for resilience, create double-duty solutions, strengthen community resilience, incentivize and institutionalize preparedness, and phase plans over time. This session will examine how this can be done at numerous scales, including the building, district, and infrastructure level.
